I am wondering what download speeds I should be getting for my DSL if its status says it's connection speed is 400 mbps. Supposedly my service is 1.5 mbps, I use AT&T High Speed Internet. However speed tests say it is 1.3 mbps. The download speeds I am getting are 150-160 kilobytes per second. Are those right or should they be something different. I thought I should get download speeds of about at least 1 megabyte. Is there something I need to do to get my downloads speeds as fast as it should be, if I am suppose to have a faster download speed that is. I did some searching about this and could it be that the cables I am using to connect my internet to my PC are limiting the speed that I get and if I get a cable that can hold more speed, my download speed will be larger? Like hypothetically if I use FireWire to connect my modem, will I get 1.5mbps download speeds, if my service is suppose to be that fast. Or is my modem not right for handling a faster service. I think the modem I am using at the moment is for the basic service I had at first which gave me 150kbs download speeds. I upgraded to a faster service package (Express or something), but my download speed hadn't changed. It has been at least a year or more, but I haven't done anything about it until now.
